A sinister blend of roasted malts combined with Revelstoke’s Stoke Roasted Coffee yields a complex rich flavour that can only be found on the darkside.

CapFlu (4580) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 15, 2014
Pours a lasting brown creamy head atop an opaque body. Nose and flavour of sweet coffee. Very straightforward stout yet not offensive...bizarre it has such low ratings by style.

cmacklin (304) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 8, 2014
650 ml bottle. Pours a dark brown with a small light brown head. Strong aroma of coffee with hints of roasted malt and dark chocolate. Flavour is dominated by coffee with light, sweeter notes of dark chocolate, roasted malt and a bitter finish. Medium body with a watery texture and soft almost flat carbonation.

cards04 (1823) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUN 6, 2014
Decent coffee stout. Pours black with tan head. Aromas of coffee and cream. Thin palate. Nice coffee flavors... But it finishes thin and watery. This is mostly all coffee... But I wish it were a bit richer and full flavored.

Drinking from a 650ml bottle. A fresh aroma, coffee. The beer is clear,dark brown with a medium brown head. Chocolate and coffee in the taste. Medium carbonated.

Oakes (12777) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2014
Dark brown, no head, aroma hints at an inky, coffeeish beer. The beer is fairly light, with a lot of coffee. Malt base is simple and sweet, touch burnt and a touch of chocolate. Good, but comes across as being really basic.

exeter (334) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 29, 2014
Suppose to be coffee in the main body but is was really weak. Bitter at the end , generally weak for the style.

Lagerboy (1287) - British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 2, 2014
Bomber. Dark mostly hueless brown, tan foam vanishes. Aroma and taste is dominated by medium roast coffee, with some sweet chocolate and toasted malt. Soft carbonation, lighter bodied, low hopped. Lightly bitter finish. Mediocre effort. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

Masterkush7 (559) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 9, 2014
650ml bottle pours black in color with a small light brown head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is dominated by coffee with hints of chocolate and roasted grains. Taste is also dominated by coffee with some chocolate malty sweetness and roasted grain bitterness. Medium to heavy body with moderate carbonation

presario (4688) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Full bottle for me. Thin brown head on dark liquid. Aroma of coffee, sweet malt and both liquid and dusty chocolate. For lower ABV the body does not seem thin. Not overpowering coffee flavour but coffee and Salk malts are definitely present. Not an extreme beer but more happening here than in a glass of Guinness..

stantheman (674) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2014
A 650 ml bottle from BC Liquor Store in North Burnaby. It calls itself a coffee stout and I can see why. The aroma and flavor of coffee is very prominent to the exclusion of all else. I couldn’t drink a pint of this stuff, but I’ll get rid of it a few ounces at a time. Blech!
